ProvenanceWaite Agricultural Research Institute
Description

The Alf Hannaford Research Bequest was made to the Waite Agricultural Research
Institute upon the death in 1969 of Mr Hannaford who was a South Australian farmer and seed processor with close ties to the Waite Institute. He had also been involved in pioneering developments in cereal agronomy and cereal disease. The bequest was used to fund a range of research-related activities including one Hannaford Research Fellow each year. The Fellow was to conduct research consistent with the terms of the bequest, preferably, as outlined in Hannaford's will, "directed towards the improvement of pastures and/or the development of quantity and quality in grain". Between 1974 and 1991 the bequest was administered by the Hannaford Bequest Committee (initially called the Hannaford Bequest Sub-Committee). The records consist of committee minutes, agendas and working papers, as well as a range of administrative files. Many of these originated with the Secretary to the Committee, Mr Dennis Dwyer.
